If you’ve got Monday off for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, here’s an idea for how to spend it. Get to work — for free. People in Joliet and across the country will do just that as they mark Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a day of service.
“It’s a day on, not a day off,” said R. Dale Evans, who chairs the Martin Luther King Day of Service Planning Committee of Joliet.

The Will County Board paid tribute Jan. 17 to the life of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and remembered the vital role he played in American history. King would have turned 84 years old on Jan. 15.
“Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a modern American hero whose leadership encouraged people of all races to rise up against injustice,” said Speaker Herbert Brooks, Jr. “Together, we should continue to follow his dream and advice ‘to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood.’”
